Commercial Litigation and Appeals
We represent clients in commercial and business litigation in state courts, federal courts, administrative venues, and in appellate proceedings. Our cases range from basic breach of contract and tort claims, to partnership and shareholder disputes, to sophisticated multilayered international cases. We also provide guidance to our clients on methods of avoiding litigation, and advice on negotiation, mediation and other non-litigation dispute resolution alternatives.
Business and Real Estate Transactions
The business side of our practice is primarily devoted to the negotiation and successful conclusion of business mergers and acquisitions, purchases and sales of commercial and high-end residential property and leasing transactions. We assist our clients in the formation of various types of businesses entities, and prepare documentation to best protect the interests of the entities, such as management and lease agreements. We also serve as general counsel to business clients and, in that capacity, assist them in all aspects of governance and operations.
We have significant experience in interpreting and applying state and Federal statutes and case law in areas such as employment discrimination, sexual harassment, whistleblower litigation, wrongful discharge, wage and hour law, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act and special laws and ordinances governing municipal employment. We assist clients in establishing and enforcing appropriate employment policies, practices and procedures, and prepare employment contracts to best protect the employers interests.
We represent individuals in marital dissolution and related proceedings, including the preparation of pre- and postnuptial agreements. We do our best to help people through the emotional and legal challenges that accompany marital issues, and help them assess their options and reach a decision that best suits their situation.
